DailyDirt: Old Video Games Live On...
from the urls-we-dig-up dept
- Video games have been part of museum collections before, but the "Applied Design" exhibit allows visitors to play some of its collected games (9 out of 14) -- including titles like Pac Man, the Sims, and Katamari Damacy. This MoMA exhibition ends soon (Jan 20th), but you might be able to find some of these games in your basement, anyway. [url]
- How much do you think an Atari 2600 console would cost in today's dollars? If you guessed about $800, you've got a pretty good handle on the rate of inflation (and a good memory for what a gaming console cost in 1977). [url]
- Maybe you've played Super Mario Bros all the way to the end and solved it, so you can better appreciate how an algorithm attempts the same task. The LearnFun/PlayFun program doesn't actually solve the game, but it does play pretty well for a player that can't actually "see" the game sprites. [url]
